Swabian hospitality

A maximum of enjoyment and unforgettable moments – surely that's what everyone wants. And Stuttgart and the Region offer plenty of opportunity for just that. Exquisite starred cuisine and down-to-earth traditional dishes guarantee lots of culinary highlights. And if you've ever eaten tender Rostbraten (fried steak with onions), tasty Kässpätzle (cheesy noodles) or Ofenschlupfer mit Vanillesoße (baked bread pudding with vanilla custard), you'll know what Swabian soul food tastes like.


Spring and summer festivals, wine festivals and Christmas events – all year round countless highlights invite visitors to the Stuttgart Region. The Stuttgart Wine Festival combines typical Swabian gemütlichkeit with regional specialities and exquisite local wines. The largest event by far is the Stuttgart Beer Festival. Each year at the end of September, Europe's biggest showmen's festival guarantees lots of entertainment and sociable fun with its fairground rides and beer tents. And as the year draws to a close, the Stuttgart Region's many festive Christmas markets are a popular attraction.
